At a kindergarten orientation recently, the teacher made a proud point of telling us, “We like for each of the children to get at least 15 mins of supervised computer time a week … you know, educational letter recognition, counting games and such …”
Neither Dave nor I had the heart to tell him that Tau can Google his own video games. He gets a DVD from the livingroom and copies the letters off the cover.
